“My favorite Hotel in Switzerland”
Reviewed 3 September 2013 via mobile

The owner has one fine eye for great art. We had an upstairs and a downstairs and both floors were perfectly outfitted with talented artists. The shutters were so cute too. My boyfriend and I decided to stay here for four more days and travel out to see the city. The owner told us about a private collection in Martigny and we saw one of the largest collections of Monet under one roof. The breakfast was good, the hotel was clean, the staff very friendly, and the location....perfect. I'll come back to this hotel in the future. It's my home away from home in Lausanne.

The room we got was a large one and had a beautiful view out to the cathedral. The staff was very helpful to the point of arranging for someone to do one's laundry at a reasonable price. Unfortunately the room itself is at a pricepoint that will likely seem unreasonable for the nonSwiss traveler -- but that is true for everything to be purchased in this country.

I stayed during my training with École hôtelière de Lausanne. It is very easy access to metro, buses because it's in downtown location where is also located near Majong, Asian Cruisine & Coop shopping mall, Star Bucks.
All staff are friendly & helpful. Free wifi with a very good speed. Bathroom is comfortable & clean. Breakfast is limited of variety.

Room Tip: Hight floor is recommended.

I've stayed 1 month in the junior suite of Hotel Regina, during a business trip. I booked the single room and it was a nice surprise to have a free upgrade.

Highest points:
- Location: really central, 5 minutes walking from Lausanne Flon metro station. Close to restaurants, shops, touristic attractions.
- Wifi internet: during 1 month, I can`t remember one day without excellent Internet access.
- Room maintenance: clean and well decorated.

Lowest points:
- Tiny bathroom, but good shower.
- The breakfast used to be croissants, cafe and fruits (but not fresh) and that's all. After some days I wished something different to eat.
- The reception and the staff are professional, but after 30 days in the small hotel, I expected to have a more friendly service.

We stayed for 2 nights and thought the hotel was very comfortable. Comfy beds, doonas and pillows and plenty of hooks and cupboard space. Nice big, clean bathroom. Staff were friendly and helpful and breakfast was good. Wifi is free and strong signal and there is a free computer in reception. It was a bit of an uphill climb from Lausanne Gare, but about a 15 minute walk. Downhill on the way back! Only bad thing was we went out for the day and when we returned the door to our room was ajar. Cleaning lady must have left open luckily everything was ok. When I reported it to reception he said it had never happened before but he would speak to them about it. Luckily we were at the end of a corridor and the hotel seemed pretty quiet. Overall I would recommend Hotel Regina.

The best thing about our stay was the staff. They were very friendly and welcoming to my husband and I. We were weary from traveling to get to Lausanne and their warm welcome was a nice surprise. This friendliness, and their excellent English, was even more appreciated after a couple of less-than-welcoming experiences in the area with French-only restaurants.

Our room was dated - blue carpeting, slightly worn furniture - but it was comfortable enough. The elevator/lift was very tiny - so small, in fact, that we had to carefully maneuver ourselves, along with our medium-sized luggage, in.

The hotel is in a great location - short walk to the train and surrounded by shops and restaurants.

The neighborhood can be a little off-putting, especially at night, but the hotel is quite comfortable. Our room had a view of the Cathedral and was quite roomy. Breakfast is good, with the best coffee that we had in Switzerland. The manager's english is very good, and he's quite helpful if you need any tourist information. All in all, the hotel was a good value, and was convenient to transportation.
